Aston Villa are weighing up a double swoop for Tottenham midfield pair David Bentley and Jermaine Jenas.
Spurs are ready to lower the �12million asking price for Bentley as manager Harry Redknapp looks for the funds to sign Celtic's Scott Brown.
Redknapp is also keen on Manchester City winger Martin Petrov, meaning a second player - likely to be Jenas - must also be shipped out.
